1.  How long will it take to complete the Machine Technology Certificate Program?

Most students in the Certificate Program organize their training around their work schedules. Due to the rapid increase of jobs in the machining industry, most students are already employed and therefore attend classes during the evening. We do have daytime training available which is usually offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

2.  What career opportunities are available?

With the fading out of the defense industry, California has redirected its machining efforts to manufacturing. There is presently a major boom in the machining industry and jobs and/or careers are plentiful.

For more information see Architecture Career Options by the American Insitute of Architects (AIA).
